I would like you to find a passage of significance in Elie Wiesels Night. It goes without saying that the writer suffered an atrocity that no person should have ever suffered, but people suffer catastrophe often, though with all due respect to the author not on the scale that Wiesel suffered. What I am getting at is, why did Wiesel write Night? What do you think he hoped his audience would gain from reading his harrowing story?In order to gain insight into why he might have decided to detail the horrors of the holocaust,Find a passage that is significant because it reveals a piece of information that can be related back to the theme(s) of the work.Type the passage into your discussion first so that your peers have context and background to understand your passage and then respond to that passage by explaining its significance as you understand the work and its intentions. Explain why the passage is significant, essentially and what you learned from it. comment on two of your peers’ work as well, discussing how they see particular passages as similar or different to your own reading of them.
reply to these two student posts .————————————————————–Esperanza Nelson 1. Reflects a change in the narrator or reveals something new about life that he discovers because of the atrocity he experiences.Eliezer’s struggles with his faith is a dominant conflict in night. at the begging of his story his faith in god began to be questioned. when he was asked to prey to god his questions were why do I prey, why is he alive , and why does he breath. Eliezer’s belief in god was unconditional and he couldn’t imagine living his life without faith in a higher power. but his faith was shaken by his experience during the holocaust. Eliezer’s faith is a product of his studies in Jewish mysticism . where he learned that god is everywhere in the world. with out god nothing wouldn’t exists the fact is that everything in the physical world in an emotional or reflects of the world. Eliezer’s was raised to believe that everything on earth reflections of god’s vision and power. —————————————————————–Jennifer RodriguezWhere is God? Where is He? someone behind me asked.
For more than half an hour [the child in the noose] stayed there, struggling between life and death, dying in slow agony under our eyes. And we had to look him full in the face. He was still alive when I passed in front of him. His tongue was still red, his eyes were not yet glazed.
Behind me, I heard the same man asking:
Where is God now?
And I heard a voice within me answer him:
Where is He? Here He isHe is hanging here on this gallows This horrible instant shows the low point of Eliezers faith in God. The death of the child also symbolizes the death of Eliezers own childhood and innocence. The suffering Eliezer sees and experiences during the Holocaust changes his entire worldview. Before this, he would not imagine questioning his God. When asked by Moishe the Beadle why he prays, Eliezer replies, Why did I pray? What a strange question. Why did I live? Why did I breathe? HIs belief was an unquestioned part of who he was, so once his faith is irreparably shaken, he becomes a completely different person. Among other things, Night is a perverse coming-of-age story, in which Eliezers innocence is cruelly stolen from him.
